someplace on this site there is a handy python script
converts the PDS .tab file that is really a type of wavefront obj file
"pdsVertexTAB2obj.py"
that script changes the vertex numbers to a "v" and the face numbers to a "f"


Thanks for the info. I can't find the .py script on the forum and even Google doesn't return any results...

45 minutes of terror

I'm vaguely reminded of the five minutes of terror back when Cassini transmitted the first channel A results from Huygens, although that one was over before most of the outside world even new anything was wrong. This time we all got to share the experience.

Anyway, congratulations to ESA on getting Rosetta back, and here's hoping for a spectacularly successful mission.

Concerning the slight delay in signal acquisition:

QUOTE
Acquisition of signal (AOS) yesterday came 18 minutes later than hoped for, but also well within expectations.
The slight AOS delay was due to the on-board computer automatically rebooting itself at the beginning of the hibernation exit sequence; the team are looking into this (but Andrea stresses this is not problematic).

Did a little forum maintenance today, starting a new Rosetta subforum and a new thread for Rosetta with the first images of the comet after wakeup.
